Any kind of jostling of my computer causes it to restart. Do I have a short in my power switch or could it be something major?

Check the cable from the header on the motherboard to the reset button at the front of the case. I'll bet the cable is cut/frayed somewhere along there.

Well, now I have another problem. It will not post at all. I'm going to replace the motherboard.

Tried new RAM. No success. Did get computer to boot while laying flat. I'm going to disconnect the reset switch cable and see if this is what is shorting it out. Then, I'm replacing the entire case.
